Visited the town of Jerome. Took a tour of the mansion with beautiful sights and the old mining town. Walked the streets and visited the center of town filled with shops from the past to the present.

The mining history was interesting, although the large photos could use some orientation notes and arrows. I would have liked to see more about the lifestyle of the family who once lived there.

This is the Must Do first stop in Jerome, after which you tour the various attractions of the town & area. Nicely done displays with some Hi Tech additions, displays, artifacts & the Douglas mansion itself. Very educational and worthwhile. Enjoy!

We've visited a couple other Old West mining towns previously but this may be the best museum we've visited. It had a wide variety of exhibits, including models of Jerome's mines, photos and artifacts of days gone by. It included information about the robber barons...More

We live in Jerome and this is our favorite place to take out of town guests. Seems every time I visit I notice something I've missed before.

This is a must stop for first time visitors to Jerome. The short video will tell you all you need to know about how the town was formed, why and who. It will take you through the history in a fun and informative way.

Amanda, Yes, it's an easy and quite scenic drive. Its about 20-35-min drive, depending on where in Sedona you're leaving from. The roads are steep, but are in great shape. Once in Jerome, many of the roads are narrow and... More

Flagstaff observations (3 Replies)
We are just back from a very nice short trip to Flagstaff. On the way up we stopped at the Jerome State Historic Park, a place we'd been promising ourselves to return to for seven years. The mansion was interesting but the head frame was most unique. Sadly, we didn't have time to do any shopping! Monday we took photos of the golden aspens at Aspen Meadow on the Snowbowl road, then climbed the Humphrey's Peak trail until our legs gave out. Not sure how far we got but it was well worth it. ...More

Thanks for your trip report, MarianReader! I enjoyed reading it. I will see if I can figure out who is supposed to be maintaining those "facilities" on Humphrey's Peak trail. I once encountered a similar mess at Buffalo Park and sent a note to the city council. I was pleased to receive two or three very attentive replies. Sometimes the powers that be just need to be told.

4 Nights in Northern Arizona Early September - Need Feedback (18 Replies)
My mother and I will be visiting Northern Arizona from September 7 to September 11 and making Flagstaff our home base. I have put together a tentative itinerary for things to do and see while we are there, and would like some feedback as to whether or not it will stand up to reality ;) . The main reason Mom and I will be in the area is to see the Grand Canyon, but there are some other places I think would be fun to see. So first of all, I would like to see if I have come up with a reasonable...More

A better base of operations is Sedona. You could spend a day in Flagstaff as a day trip. And you plan a day trip to GCNP. Most of the other places are short trips near Sedona. Sedona is a spectacular place to stay as well as visit.
